A tweet by Garry Newman, creator of Garry's Mod, asks a simple question: "Anyone unable to shade polygon normals?" In this post he explains this is him having a chuckle at the expense of pirates, as he has programmed a deliberate bug into his sandbox mod for the Source engine that causes this error. Word is: "Yesterday I made pirate versions of Garryís Mod pop up an error. This error only happens when people pirate the game. 48 hours ago there were no results for this phrase on Google. As I type this thereís 717 results (and climbing by the minutes). This is partly as a result of me stupidly mentioning it on Twitter and lots, and lots, and lots of news sites posting about it. I donít get why itís getting so much attention." He also makes an interesting note that: "The overwhelming response has been supportive. Which to be quite honest I donít really understand. If EA or someone does something like this people go crazy. Maybe itís the motive.." He proceeds to explain that motive and various other elements of this interesting situation. Thanks GamePron.
